    Although simple and inexpensive, trimming potentiometers can be awkward to reach or readjust in large systems. A new alternative is an electrically programmable analog device, called an Epad. The small floating-gate MOS device is programmed with an inexpensive instrument working with a PC. It may be configured to provide a trimmable voltage or resistance, which will hold its setting indefinitely o... View full abstract»

    Now that the US standard for digital TV has set technical parameters, equipment has to be built for production, editing and broadcast. The full-production HDTV facility must support existing NTSC equipment. When possible, it also must allow compressed operations (like storage and splicing) to avoid encoding and decoding penalties. The configuration resembles that being created as part of the NIST ... View full abstract»
